BLACK DAHLIA MUR­DER

Fool ‘ Em All Metal Blade

Blunt - - In Review -

There’s a lot of people on Warped Tour that suck…” “But­twipes are es­sen­tial.” The Black Dahlia Mur­der are very funny and very hon­est, two qual­i­ties you don’t usu­ally as­so­ciate with the mys­te­ri­ous world of death metal. And it’s what makes Disc 1, the doc­u­men­tary el­e­ment of Fool ‘Em All, so en­joy­able. Here each mem­ber is pro­filed, hun­dreds of bongs are toked upon, ex-mem­bers are ragged on and heav­ily tat­tooed men gen­er­ally act like chil­dren, wrestling each other around the tour bus. The odd ones out on the Warped Tour, we see them jump out of their bunk beds each day to win over the hard­core and pop-punk kids with vary­ing suc­cess but un­wa­ver­ing de­ter­mi­na­tion. Then it’s back to drink­ing, rap­ping, dancing and gen­eral tom­fool­ery.

Disc 2 is what you’re pay­ing for though if you’re a real fan. An hour of live footage that takes in the best of the Warped Tour and a trek through Europe, it fea­tures one of the best sound mixes we’ve ever heard on a metal DVD and shows how hard they smash it out ev­ery night. The Black Dahlia Mur­der are a se­verely un­der­rated force in mod­ern metal and if you’ve got a friend you need to con­vert to the cause, this is the ul­ti­mate tool. Crank up the vol­ume on the re­mote and get ready to break most of your liv­ing room fur­ni­ture.
